Perimeter 81 | February 28, 2022

Perimeter 81, the Zero Trust Network Access market leader, has expanded its Security Services Edge (SSE) solution to include a Secure Web Gateway component. The Secure Web Gateway (SWG) extends the organization's remarkable simplicity of use to Web filtering, ensuring that company personnel is protected from fraudulent websites and unsafe information regardless of where they work. The Secure Web Gateway from Perimeter 81 will restrict access to specific URLs or categories of websites based on the user, their role, and other factors such as the day of the week. These categories are continuously updated daily to ensure that no site goes unnoticed. In addition, employee access to "restricted" or "warned" websites is tracked and reported for auditing purposes to ensure that business policies and auditing requirements are met. For applications that do not require SSL inspection and protect employee privacy, such as when browsing financial or healthcare websites, bypass rules can be created. “The new Secure Web Gateway functionality is a big step forward for our Cybersecurity Experience (CSX) Platform, and delivering an enterprise-grade secured corporate network over the public internet, With this release, we are extending the reach of our radically simple cybersecurity beyond the corporate hybrid cloud, to the infinite number of touchpoints an employee may encounter on the web. The Secure Web Gateway will be transparent to users and very easy to administer, like all the other components of our Security Services Edge solution.” Amit Bareket, CEO at Perimeter 81 Chief Growth Officer at Perimeter 81, Sagi Gidali, adds: “Our recent State of the Cybersecurity Report revealed that 71% VPs and CIOs find it more difficult to prevent cyberattacks due to the complexity of the cybersecurity solutions they use. By providing an exceptional cybersecurity experience for both users and the IT team that implements and manages cybersecurity, we can assist companies in protecting both their hybrid networks and their hybrid employees more effectively. With this release, we have expanded that protection with our Secure Web Gateway, managed from the same easy-to-use dashboard.”

On QingCloud Marketplace, Aurora Mobile Launched JG Verification Service

Aurora Mobile | February 21, 2022

Aurora Mobile Limited, a prominent mobile developer service provider in China, said that it had formed a relationship with QingCloud Technologies Corp. ("QingCloud"). As a result, the Company will make its verification service ("JVerification") available on the QingCloud Marketplace, a one-stop trading platform for cloud-based apps and services. JVerification will provide encrypted user registration and login, 2-step security verification, and other multi-factor authentication and identity verification services and will be securely integrated into QingCloud's hybrid ecosystem. "third-party registration and login," "Verification code registration and login," and "account password registration and login" are now the most popular methods for app registration and login. Unfortunately, these procedures are time-consuming since they require users to continually enter one-time verification codes given to their mobile phones or navigate between different interfaces to log in. At the same time, these verification methods are frequently vulnerable to cybersecurity flaws, hacking, and data leaks. As a result, developers must secure apps for both Android and iOS platforms using various verification techniques, resulting in a poor user experience. JVerification has integrated its gateway certification with China's three major telecom carriers to address this issue, covering up to 99.9% of mobile consumers. JVerification-enabled apps allow users to log in with a single click without inputting their phone numbers, passwords, or verification codes. Instead, users need to complete the registration and login process, which begins with launching the app, selecting registration and login, and then selecting one-click login using their local phone numbers. To enable the one-click registration and login feature in their apps, developers need to incorporate the JVerification SDK. Furthermore, because the one-click registration and login function is based on local phone numbers, the verification procedure is secured and conducted directly through local telecom carriers. This system reduces the hazards of SMS hijacking and data leaks and ensures user and developer information security. JVerification has become the top choice of more and more users in the 5G era as an efficient, convenient, and secure one-click verification service. In addition, it continues to allow apps to improve user conversion and traffic value. JVerification will be formally launched on the QingCloud Marketplace due to this partnership and will benefit from QingCloud's solid reputation, powerful ecosystem resources, and extensive operating systems. QingCloud Marketplace, as part of QingCloud's open ecosystem, has collaborated with ecosystem partners to provide customers with a wide range of high-quality vertical apps and has grown to become one of the most critical enterprise platforms for customers in industries such as finance, energy, transportation, education, medical care, and other Internet services. Aurora Mobile will continue to promote close collaboration with QingCloud in the future, leveraging its technological advantages to extend its product offerings, empowering developers and organizations to undertake high-quality operations, long-term development, and effective monetization. Furthermore, with more proactive partners in China, the company gradually establishes a complete and innovative ecosystem.
